About the Author
Marcia Vaughan was born in the USA but lived in New Zealand's Cook Islands for a year before coming to Australia, where she worked as a school librarian. It was here that she began writing and being published. She wrote more than 85 well reviewed books, including fun activity and recipe books, and many in reader series such as Jellybean Readers, Celebrate Reading, Voyager and Literacy Links. She also wrote the Deadly and Dangerous Australian nature series for children, and her work Wombat Stew (1985) was been widely translated, with the characters used in children's road safety posters in New South Wales. Vaughan also wrote the Sticky Beak mystery series of 26 volumes. Many of the reviews have commented on the suitablility of her works to be read aloud and she has explained this in interviews by stating that she reads a story onto a cassette tape.
